Archaeology of Māori Settlement of Devonport Peninsula

July 3 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Local historian and all-round personality Dave Veart will present a historical and archaeological review of Māori settlement of the Devonport Peninsula.

The area was one of the first places to be settled by the East Polynesian colonists, evidenced by stone tools found in the area. The moa ovens found at Torpedo Bay also indicate early settlement. Dave will look at why it was such an early settlement and touch on the later history.

Entry is free but The Rose Centre would welcome koha by gold coin donation.
